Aurora. Jan 17. 21 nights
Our first time on Aurora, we booked not realising that this was the first leg of a world cruise (not that it made a huge amount of difference to us) and celebrating 180 years of the P and O company/cruise line
Another very competitively priced cruise
As in my general review.
Good cabin with twice the storage space that we needed. Well laid out
Good shower ( it did playup at the end of the cruise) good pressure and stable temperature
Good lighting in the cabin and the shower room. Loads of storage space in the shower room
Lovely bed and bedding
The TV was ok, I thought the remote was too simple and needed at least a "sleep" button
However a real downside to this cabin is its very very noisy and a good nights sleep is impossible with the roaring sounds behind the wall when sailing. I didnt get used to it during the 21 nights spent in the cabin
We used the hop on off bus service. Bought tickets on the pier and the bus stop is only a short walk away
We had one day in Dubai with the ship in port and then three days in a hotel before flying back home.
We bought the 48 hour Big Bus hop on/off tickets and found them really good value for money. We bought them before we left the UK but they have a depot at the cruise terminal and the transfer bus to the Dubai Mall leaves just outside the cruise terminal. There are three routes and the Dubai mall is on the red city route. They all take a long time to complete a circuit though. Free water on the buses
